I loved seeing headgears.  I was fortunate that had to wear a headgear for 2 years for 20 hours a day, I decided to wear it 24/7 and loved the looks and questions. Then I was lucky enough to have wear a tongue crib for 7 months.

By far...headgear. All types of headgear are of interest to me, but facemasks and combination headgear are most interesting probably because they are so noticeable. I also find appliances such as the Herbst, MARA, Crozat, etc. interesting...they look very intriguing in a mouthful of metal braces.

The questions that I got were when I was wearing my tongue crib.  The main one was what is that cage in mouth for? Once when I was wearing my headgear a young lady commented on how it took guts to wear it in public.

Mmmm I would say the elastics, as long as they are not hidden in the back, I like everything that's noticeable (seeing or hearing a lisp)

I find metal brackets more fascinating than ceramic, maybe because that's what I wear, power chains are great especially in bold colours, as hey make the braces so much more noticable. Expanders and tongue cribs are great and I love how they get in the way of clear speech, they can be bear metal or acrylic, but my preference is usually bare metal unless the acrylic is thick enough to be visible. I find Herbst and forsus appliances great, I like that the make sounds when the patient is speaking or moving their jaw in any way while restricting lateral movement of the jaw. Lastly I really dig most kinds of headgear because of how it's impossible to hide, and the restrictions that need to be placed on the wearers activities.

In fixed normal braces (brackets only) I love the elastics. If there are more things than brackets, my favourite appliance is the tongue crib.

In removable braces I prefer the plastic or metal parts that are in the anterior part.

And with a headgear my favourite view is the way in the lips are in touch with the facebow, because the facebow force the lips to go out when the person wants to close them

Definitely fixed metal braces.
I love the look of molar bands and Herbst.
The more metal and the more devices the better.

I  also like the look of Hawleys

I like fixed appliances in addition to metal/ceramic braces.
Especially if they really get in the way of your tongue like expanders, a tongue crib or maybe a fixed bite plate.
Not being able to take them out and being forced to adapt to them as much as you can is very intriguing.
